Horton and Krejci each score a goal and get 3 points in Bruins' 4-1 win over Caps

BOSTON - Nathan Horton had a goal and two assists, Milan Lucic set up Boston's first two scores on hustle plays behind the net and the Bruins beat the Washington Capitals 4-1 Saturday.

David Krejci added a goal and two assists, Rich Peverley had a power-play goal and Andrew Ference scored his first of the season on the eve of his 34th birthday for the Bruins, who avenged a frustrating loss against the Capitals earlier this month.

Bruins backup goaltender Anton Khudobin made 32 saves, and Lucic had a career-high three assists.

Marcus Johansson was credited with Washington's goal when the puck caromed into the net off Bruins defenceman Johnny Boychuk.

It was the Capitals' fourth loss in five games.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
